Question about MSI A6200038US Notebook

1 Answer

Last week, I spilled the coffee. I get zero power after a week of drying out. I've used the power supply, and the battery, and no power at all. I have read that cleaning the motherboard may help, but I can not figure out how to take it apart without breaking it. Please help if you can!

If you aren't knowledgeable in disassembling a laptop, then I would encourage you to take it or send it to a computer shop. I usually charge $110 - $130 to do this type of repair\servicing. I've had lots of customers who've done the same thing you did, and then try to take apart their laptop to clean\repair it. They almost always end up breaking something; which ends up costing them more for me to buy the part, fix it, and re-assemble the entire thing. If you decide to do this on your own, then be sure that you have something that you can keep all of the little screws in and have them labeled so that you know where they go when you put the computer back together. More than likely your laptop is going to need an new motherboard put in it. You can expect that to run you at least $250. -madhatter639

Soda was spilled on sharp el1179p


do not power on the device, it is crucial that you leave it to dry and as soon as possible put it in a bag of rice. The rice will absorb the moisture in the device. You should give it about two weeks (the longer the better) and you should have completely removed all battery components at this point if there are any. After a generous waiting period of two weeks or so, take it out of the rice and give it a try. I spilled a full 8 oz cup of hot coffee RIGHT into my laptop keyboard and it immediately shut off but I followed the above steps and I am using it right now just fine and it is a year later. Good luck!

Once the liquid was spilled it was important to open and do a full clean up on the board. Now it seems there is moisture or shorting in the board due to this which can cause this malfunction.
So it is best to remove the keypad and check on the mother board. Clean the board and dry using a hair dryer. Make sure that the keyboard also is fully dry .
Reset only after the board is fully found to be dry . If the set wont power ON then some damge was done when it was powered the last time due to the spillover shorting.

My Keurig Single cup sensor won't work. When I set a coffee cup in the craddle it doesn't recognize that the cup is there. Any suggestions?


This happened to me 2 weeks ago. I searched this site and saw no responses, so I want to answer now that I know what to do. Pull out, clean and dry the spill assembly the cup sits on. Dry the open area. Let it set for about a week or two. I live in CA (its very dry here). I was so happily surprised when I tried my Keurig again yesterday - it is working like NEW. I used to work for another small appliance maker so I knew that the sensor had become wet when the spill assembly filled to capacity. Hope you still have your Keurig and this solution works for you too!

After liquid spill the laptop has to be disassemble and the motherboard inspected for liquid damage. In some cases cleaning the motherboard might fix the laptop.

Spilled coffee on D600 notebook, power supply turns off when plugged in after had the notebook cleaned. is my notebook not fixable?


When the power supply turns off when plugged into the laptop it is indicating that there is a short. Remove your battery and try connecting the power adapter again. If the problem persists your motherboard will most likely need to be replaced.
There are companies out there that will repair motherboards however if the laptop was on when the spill occurred there is little to know chance that the motherboard is repairable.

I spilled a small amount of coffee onto the keyboard while the computer was in use. I immediately turned it upside down and dried it off. I cannot get it to power " on"


Don't power it on. If that is doesn't seem kind of all water proof kind. Take out the battery and the AC power supply. Turn the laptop upside down without closing the screen monitor and let the coffee be out. Dry it/or take it on a reputable shop( I may suggest).

Have it clean. Hope it doesn't fry something inside.

When powering up just shuts off


you should have let it dry completely before powering it up, eventually the Power supply card(voltage regulator) got wet and stopped working, you need to have it replaced, it's not a battery problem even though the ps card might have damaged the battery a bit.
